After a welcome lunch break, HCB accompanied people arriving for the streamlined Lions Club Annual Citizenship Ceremony with a few popular songs. The event was kept short due to COVID-19 restrictions and the need for the presiding Minister to leave the event to return to Canberra. The band performed the ‘National Anthem’ as part of the ceremony and finished with a rousing rendition of ‘The Man from Snowy River’. A long but rewarding day – worth putting in the hours of rehearsal and practice.
